Course content

Our programme will instruct you in the principles of nutrition, public health nutrition, clinical nutrition and nutrition research skills. If you are an MSc student, you will also have the opportunity to undertake an in-depth, supervised research project into a subject of your choice.

The MSc is an intensive conversion programme which we have designed with the needs of graduates in biological sciences or medicine in mind.
The PG Dip is ideal if you want to study for a shorter period than the MSc, for example, if you need to update your knowledge but you do not wish to undertake a research project.

Both programmes aim to provide you with a broad knowledge and understanding of nutrition and to develop your scientific skills to a high level.
